Remote Update Service. Update your Redkey online to the latest version of software whenever future updates are released.
Optional Text Interface. The Redkey uses a Graphical User Interface. A separate text interface is available for use if preferred.
Language Support. Choose from several language options. English (Default), Dutch ｜Nederlands, German ｜ Deutsche, Swedish ｜Svenska, Japanese ｜ 日本人, French ｜ Français, Italian ｜ Italiano, Spanish ｜ Español, Korean ｜ 한국어, Hindi ｜ हिंदी (Graphical user interface only), Chinese ｜中文 (Graphical user interface only) English is selected by default.
Enhanced, multi-stage wipe process. The Redkey erase process now combines multiple data erasing techniques to further make data recovery impossible. The new "Cryptographic" function encrypts your disk then discards the keys to effectivley make data recovery impossible. The legacy "Binary" algorithm uses conventional digital erasure techniques to overwrite every single bit of data on a disk drive. Internal wipe coming soon. Each Algorithm can be selected individually within the advanced area.
Verification. Following a wipe, the Redkey scans your computer for any remaining data to make sure everything is erased! Works independently of the wipe process for autonomy.
Reporting. When wipe is complete download and save a progress report as a text file on any Fat32 formatted memory stick. Helps meet guidelines on data security and safe asset disposal practices such as those specified in NIST and GDPR guidelines. Currently active and under development for improvement with update due soon.
Redkey is a work in progress and is being continuously improved. We have a roadmap for continuous development and improvement. Software is released periodically through our separate site redkeyupdater.com
